Red Words: Be Light and Salt

I'm continuing with the Red Words in the Bible. These are Jesus Commands. It helps me to study these and keep them in mind. If you have time, the commands today are elaborated on by Jesus and reading them in context will broaden your understanding.


Matt. 5:16 Let your light shine before men that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.

Luke 11:35 See to it that the light within you is not darkness.

Mark 9:50 Have salt in yourselves and be at peace with each other.

John 12:35 Walk while you have the light, before darkness overtakes you.

John 12:36 Put your trust in light while you have it, so that you may become sons of light.

Dear Father, I want to let the light of your Word and the light of your Holy Spirit - within me shine. Keep me learning to do this. I know sometimes I hold back out of fear, shyness, passivity or laziness. Teach me how to let it shine so it will draw others to you. You are revealing residues of darkness in me and helping rid me of these.  I also want to be salty - add your flavor to my conversations and my relationships. Help me break old habits and any resistances that keep me bland or that hide your light.  Fill me with your light each day.  I thank you for the knowledge that you are the Light of the world. 

Blessings, Dottie
